Cabinet refacing is essentially a replacement of the cabinet "skins"—replacing the doors and drawer fronts and applying a new veneer over the existing surface of the body ("carcass") of the cabinets. The hardware—the hinges, handles, and drawer pulls—are usually also replaced during refacing.
After admiring all of these unique cabinet styles, you are surely having trouble deciding what appeals to you most. Why not try a mixture of all of them? Even in a minimalist interior you can mix up the palette a bit. Why not try lower wood cabinets in combination with upper white lacquered ones? Or veneered walnut cabinet side panels with shiny lacquered faces? Or stainless steel floating upper shelves with painted lower wood cabinets.
Antique-furniture-style cabinets and a farm table island stamp this kitchen with country charm. The brand-new, custom-built cabinets are heavily distressed to look as if layers of paint had been applied to them over many years. And intentionally unmatched colors of mossy-greens and woodsy-browns give the appearance that this kitchen might have been added to or changed over the years. Beveled moldings and ledge accents give standard upper cabinets a vintage-cupboard look, reinforcing the farmhouse feel.
